A ROOM OF ONE'S OWN. New York: Harcourt, Brace and Company, 1929, 8vo., 202pp. Publisher's original dark blue boards, titles to spine gilt.

A lovely example of the very uncommon edition preceded only by the signed limited edition issued in the USA & simultaneously in the United Kingdom. Woolf's major polemic against patriarchy, based loosely on two lectures she delivered, one at Newnham and the other at Girton. Kirkpatrick and Clarke A12a. Woolmer 215. Woolf observed in her diary, "I shall be attacked for a feminist". An increasingly uncommon & important Woolf title & 20th century literary highlight. Excellent copy. Kirkpatrick A12c.

Toronto: McClelland & Stewart, 1932. First Edition. Hardcover. Dust Jacket Included. Vanessa Bell. Toronto: McClelland & Stewart, 1932. Vanessa Bell. First Edition. Hardcover. Woolf, Virginia. A ROOM OF ONE'S OWN. Toronto: McClelland & Stewart, 1932, 8vo., 172pp. Publisher's original blue boards, titles to spine gilt. A near fine fresh copy [neat contemporary name on the ffe.] in the blue printed dustwrapper of the First Canadian Edition, first printing. The most elusive of the First Editions having been printed in the US [possibly from Harcourt Brace supplied sheets] in an unknown but very small edition, [250 - 500 copies, a speculation]. A very nice example for the completist, the DJ has one repaired closed tear but is otherwise very bright & interesting in its yellowish tonal quality. Woolf's major polemic against patriarchy, based loosely on two lectures she delivered, one at Newnham and the other at Girton. Kirkpatrick and Clarke A12dd. Woolf observed in her diary,… Read More

New York/London: The Fountain Press/The Hogarth Press, 1929. First Edition. Hardcover. Spine is mildly sunned; gilt strong. Near Fine. This edition preceded the English edition (both trade and signed) by three days. Original cinnamon cloth. One of only 492 copies SIGNED by the author (this copy marked "out of series" instead of numbered and belonged to the Yale University Press printer Carl Rollins) of this important and desirable title, a compelling essay on women and writing that has become a classic feminist text. "A woman must have money and a room of her own if she is to write fiction," said Woolf, "and that, as you will see, leaves the great problem of the true nature of woman and the true nature of fiction unsolved."

Description:
London: Published by Leonard and Virginia Woolf at the Hogarth Press, 1929. First printing. Near fine in near-fine jacket. First edition of one of the most influential literary essays of the twentieth century, and a landmark of feminist thought. In 1928, Woolf delivered two lectures about women and fiction at the Cambridge women's colleges Newnham and Girton, lectures which she expanded into A ROOM OF ONE'S OWN the following year. In surveying the careers of novelists like Jane Austen and George Eliot, Woolf considers the conditions necessary to create art and outlines the limitations of the literal and metaphorical spaces in which women writers have had to work. Playing with the idea of Shakespeare's sister, whose talents could not have found similar expression in her time, Woolf predicts that a woman writer the equal of Shakespeare will emerge under the right conditions. This is an exceptional copy: clean, fresh, and bright. 7'' x 4.5''. Original orange cloth, spine lettered in gilt. In original… Read More

Description:
London: The Hogarth Press, 1929. FIRST EDITION with Dust Jacket. Original cinnamon cloth, gilt on the spine quite bright & unrubbed, in the rare original dust jacket. This has had archival restoration at the top & bottom of the spine and at the corners. Hardly perceptible. Previous owner's signature on front free end page and light discoloring to same else EXCELLENT condition in VERY GOOD dust jacket. Woolf's seminal essay on women and writing has become a classic feminist text: Woolf's "aim was to establish a woman's tradition, recognizable by its circumstances, subject-matter, and its distinct problems. A Room of One's Own charted this vast territory with an air of innocent discovery which itself sharpens the case against induced ineffectiveness and ignorance that for so long clouded the counter-history of women" "A woman must have money and a room of her own if she is to write fiction," said Woolf, "and that, as you will see, leaves the… Read More
